field of Disability refers to an organized system of services to be provided
by specially qualified professionals to all children, youth and adults
who need special attention, special equipment and materials, special physical
facilities and specially organized conditions and environment at the earliest
possible time after the identification of its need. The purpose is to
assist those individuals who need special attention in attaining their
full potential, so that they are able to perform according to their capabilities
and become to the best possible extent functional individuals of society.
Specialized services may be provided for as long as are necessary, which
may be for a short time, for a prolonged period, or for the rest of the
lives of certain individuals.
During the recent years, International movements for empowerment of persons
with disabilities have emerged rapidly through international conventions
and agreements. This has made the Government of Pakistan a partner in
the global movement for betterment of this segment of society.
The provision of a comprehensive range of facilities for persons with
disabilities from pre-natal care through education, vocational training,
employment and support during adult life cannot be matter for a single
government department or agency. Active cooperation: of a large number
of relevant organizations at Federal, Provincial, Local and NG0s level,
along with involvement of the family, professionals and communities at
large, have, therefore, to play their active role in the provision and
growth of services of real quality for this segment of society.
